The deluge of Justice League content – both official and unofficial – continues unabated.
In the past 24 hours alone, we’ve caught wind of Ben Affleck and his “more traditional [and] heroic” Caped Crusader, fan theories involving Green Lantern, and a poster that brings together the entire squad – yes, even Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel is featured in the latest Justice League one-sheet.
Currently in the process of some fairly extensive reshoots, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s DC mega-movie is still in a state of flux, though sources close to the Warner Bros. joint claim Whedon, a two-time Avengers director, has been brought on board to help lighten the film’s tone – particularly the arc of Victor Stone (AKA Cyborg). Those reshoots and pick-ups have resulted in some unexpected headaches, too, given Henry Cavill and his mustache are both committed to Mission: Impossible 6, which recently experienced production troubles of its own after Tom Cruise broke his ankle on location in London. Filming has since been suspended for the two months, though Paramount is still holding on to that prime July 2018 release date.
Getting back to Justice League, though, and Reddit has uncovered a leaked image (see above) of Batman, Wonder Woman, and presumably The Flash reporting for duty. It’s a shot of a computer monitor, one that displays an unfinished sequence involving three of the six heroes, so there’s only so much information we can glean here. In accordance with the official footage that has been released, one would assume that this scene centers on Bats, The Flash, and Diana as they infiltrate S.T.A.R. Labs – either that, or they’re on the hunt of Steppenwolf and his many minions.
Justice League will be with us on November 17th. It’s been a long, meandering road to release, but there’s now finally some light at the end of the tunnel – and we’re not just talking about today’s pre-CG shot.
